When exploring new Edmonton communities, few will catch your eye like the Uplands at Riverview. This new west side Edmonton neighbourhood will capture your heart with its beautiful location and close proximity to every amenity imaginable. Read on to learn more about what this amazing new community has to offer. 

Parks and Green Spaces  

One of the best parts of living in the Uplands is being so close to the gorgeous Wedgewood Creek ravine. Considered to be one of the city’s hidden gems, the ravine offers a forest-like feel with towering trees and pathways. Best of all, the ravine is protected from future development but will still provide a great outdoor space for residents to explore. 

The Uplands offers even further opportunities to get outside with playgrounds, parks and walking trails. Here too, if you love to golf, this neighbourhood is close to several popular courses including the River Ridge Golf and Country Club.  

Commuter Routes 

If you drive to work, the Uplands is ideal as it sits just five minutes from the Anthony Henday. As a result, you’ll also have quick and easy access to the Whitemud and the QEII. With so many major roads nearby, you’re sure to get where you need to go in no time at all.

This neighbourhood is close to one of Edmonton’s largest recreation centres. The Terwillegar Community Recreation Centre offers everything you need from a sport, wellness, and health facility including a large swimming pool, a fitness centre and a public skating rink. With programs and classes available for people of all ages, every member of your family is sure to enjoy having this rec centre close by. 

Shopping

You can also expect to have a variety of stores and services within arm’s reach. This includes banks, restaurants, a Shopper’s Drug Mart and a Save On Foods – all of which are sure to help you complete your errands quickly and easily. With the Uplands being so accessible, you can easily take advantage of shopping in nearby communities such as the Currents of Windermere shopping district, for example. 

Entertainment

You will also have close access to Fort Edmonton park – which is a popular place to go for family-friendly fun. Here you can take a journey through history and learn more about Canada from 1846 to 1929. With so many activities taking place year-round, you’re sure to visit again and again. 

The Uplands is also just a short drive to the luxury Windermere Cineplex Odeon – which also happens to be Edmonton’s premiere VIP theatre. 

Schools

Lastly, no matter what age your children are, they will have several educational options to choose from. Michael A Kostek School (K-6), S. Bruce Smith School (7-9), and Jasper Place School (10-12) are all within a short driving distance, just to name a few. 

With all these great amenities, it’s not hard to see why so many are eager to call the Uplands home. So, if you’re looking for a new home in a great new Edmonton neighbourhood, contact us today to learn more about this beautiful new community.
